Don’t you all remember the days when it was so exciting to go back to school? I was that girl who had to have the perfect outfit for the first day of school…obvi. Not going to lie, I still use the back to school excuse to go shopping. Anyone else? I mean it is a great time to find some amazing “steals and deals” on fall merchandise.



Also, I was an athletic kid in school (cheerleading counts!) so I could always use a new pair of running shoes. My dad loved any excuse to go to Academy Sports + Outdoors, so we almost always went there to find our sports attire for the new school year. Another reason he loved going shopping at Academy was that they guarantee the best prices or they will beat any competitor’s advertised price by 5 percent.

In school, I would always wear Nike Shoes. However, a few years ago I learned I have flat feet so I need to wear Brooks Running Shoes for certain types of activity. I still love Nike and especially love these new Nike Women’s Flex TR 7 Training Shoes from Academy. These Nike trainers are great for days when I’m just out running errands, and I love that they use breathable mesh uppers that allow your feet to stay cool all day. They are available now in Academy stores and online for less than $60.

I went and did a foot analysis to determine which running shoes are best for my flat feet. If you’ve never done it I highly recommend it. That’s when I was introduced to Brooks Running Shoes. I have been a big fan of Brooks for a few years now. They are seriously so freaking comfortable. Recently, they came out with Brooks’ Revel shoe, which is available at Academy. The shoe is stretchy in the midfoot providing ultimate comfort and is designed to adapt easily to your foot movements. Exactly what I need!!! I am so happy I found these! You can get them at any Academy store or online via their website.

Our family loves that Academy Sports + Outdoors goes the extra mile to find the right gear for its customers. Especially during Back to School season, I know my parents appreciated the convenience of coming to Academy to take care of all our needs in one place. To this day, we are still loyal shoppers, and I always go there to find my athletic shoes. No matter what sport you play or whatever workout you choose they will have what you are looking for I promise!
